    Private security companies called in to combat Somali piracy

    To give some of you gents an idea of the problem in the Indian ocean. Imagine trying to patrol an area the size of America with 30 cars that have a max speed of 30kt. Thats what the navy is up against. DD

    Ship’s Master or Security Team Leader: Who should have control over when to say fire

    Argyll The area I work in, there are no facilities to zero weapons. Yes, we take weapons on the ships with us but we do not keep them in a villa or hotel with us. They are handed back into the security services armoury. So, as I said, the only time we get to test fire/zero them is 12 miles...

    Ship’s Master or Security Team Leader: Who should have control over when to say fire

    Muse or Charles, If I were a company providing security for ships, the people I choose to employ are down to me. I know the guys I want to employ, maybe one or two would not pass a CRB check but why should that stop a good opperator doing a good job for me and the shipping company. I could...

    Ship’s Master or Security Team Leader: Who should have control over when to say fire

    At the ned of the day, the sec team leader has the last word on when to engage. Having first discussed this with the Catain when initially boarding the vessel, the sbject shoud be discussed and agreed. What if, the Captain is off duty or on a call in his cabin/dayroom, are we supposed to wait...

    Hired guns secure ships, stir controversy (Stars and Stripes)

    Jim, I would love to know the 8ports you have permission to enter/leave that allow you to have firearms aboard or with you. Cant imagine you can carry the weapons through customs etc or am I not reading it correctly? I know of only 2 places where weapons can be picked up/droped off in the G of...

    Do you transit in the IRTC or outside the corridor? -

    MMWC. I dont see what the relivence is here. If a ship chooses to use a diffrent route then thats up them. If they get attacked of taken thats down to their stupidity. Maybe they know there are armed Yemani security in the area and are willing to chance it. Then again, due to the fact that...

    GoA waters

    Tueblue the ROE has nothing to do with the master of the vessel. its down to the security team. I dont tell him how to control the ship. he doesnt tell me when to engage targets. if you have worked in the G of A as part of an armed security team you would know this. DD

    Do you transit in the IRTC or outside the corridor? -

    MMWC I thought a man of your calibre and experience would know that there are certain Countries who supply navy escort vessels to the Gof A use the north side of the IRTC (the old transit corridor) as there route through the G of A. Point A being on the East, point B to the West and point C...

    GoA waters

    Hidro, how do the pirates know there are no armed security on a ship? Only way they will find out in my experience is if hey get within a 1/3 of a mile and then there has to be a flare and then a warning shot. If they come on then its fair game. If however they turn our ROE are to stop...
